Based on the bestselling text, Social Psychology, 10th Edition, Exploring Social Psychology, 6th Edition succinctly explores social psychological science and its applications to contemporary issues and everyday life. Thirty-one short modules-each readable in a single sitting-introduce students to important social phenomena and to how scientists discover and explain such phenomena.

Throughout, students are challenged to think critically about such issues as:

  • How does our thinking--both conscious and unconscious--drive our behavior?
  • What leads people sometimes to hurt and sometimes to help one another?
  • What kindles social conflict, and how can we transform closed fists into helping hands?

Answering these and other questions, Exploring Social Psychology, 6th Edition expands our self-understanding and sensitizes us to the social forces that pull our strings.
